Around 100 research professors in management sciences and economics from Télécom Ecole de Management and the Université d'Evry-Val-d'Essonne work together to form LITEM (Laboratory for Innovation, Technologies, Economics and Management).

Created on 16 July 2013 and recognized as a host team (HT 7363) in Spring 2015, LITEM is the first laboratory to bring together a university (Université d'Evry-Val-d'Essonne), a public Grande Ecole business school (Télécom Ecole de Management) and a Grande Ecole business school with links to the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, (Grenoble Ecole de Management). The scientific project of LITEM is to gain a better understanding of new economic and managerial models which stem from technological innovation. 

The vocation of this laboratory is to become one of the top actors in France for research within the field of management in relation to digital transformation.

One of the very top French laboratories of economics and management

LITEM brings together more than one hundred researchers in economic sciences and management sciences électroniquement Ecole de Management, Grenoble Ecole de Management and from the Université Evry-Val-d'Essonne. Around twenty researchers from Télécom Ecole de Management and from Université d'Evry-Val-d'Essonne, who hold the French diploma required to supervise research, will support around thirty doctoral students enrolled in the SHS doctoral program (Humanities and Social Sciences) of the Université Paris-Saclay.

Scientific project: to gain an understanding of the new economic and managerial models which stem from technological innovation

In our modern world, we have experienced significant upheavals which have destabilized previous economic and managerial models. Technological innovations profoundly transform both the environment and management practices. Economic or financial crises destabilize these very paradigms. LITEM's objective is to understand these transformations and to support the economic actors in finding new formats and new organizational structures which must also be anticipated and defined.

5 research topics

LITEM's research topics are:

  1. Innovation, Technology, Entrepreneurship (ITE): this topic brings together researchers studying the economics and management of innovation and entrepreneurship.
  2. Information and Transformation (IT): this topic brings together researchers working on organizational transformation resulting from information systems.
  3. New Forms and Structures of Organizations (NFSO): this topic brings together researchers who are interested in the critique of organizational theory and who propose theoretical approaches in order to understand the new managerial phenomena operating at the heart of organizations.
  4. Marketing and Social Networks (MSN): this topic brings together researchers who are working on advanced forms of marketing and on the impact of social network management on company strategy.
  5. Finance: this area brings together researchers studying the comprehension of current financial systems. Some of the researchers are also working on alternatives to current financial systems.
